Following 8 successful seasons with our current playing and
training kit design; we’ve taken the opportunity to go back to the drawing
board and redesign out kits with a fresh modern look! From the outset, we
wanted to stay true to the club’s identify that has formed over a number of
years by keeping our (recognisable) combination of colours (claret and sky blue)
and pattern (stripes) as this has formed part of our heritage.
During the planning stage, we were offered kits that were readily
available however we felt it was important to visually distinguish our club’s presence
on the pitch by opting for a bespoke design specifically for our club. We also
took the opportunity to utilise the sublimation printing process for our branding
(club and sponsor), numbering and badges meaning the personalisation will be printed
into the material as the kits are manufactured. Moving away from embroidery and
heat transfer will help with washing the kits as well as preserving the longevity
We have instructed the help of Macca Sports to deliver our kits
for the coming season (2019/20) and we look to phase the roll out over the next
2 season as we provide approximately 1,000 new kits to our players, which will
see all 42 WWFC teams wearing our new design!
We’re extremely excited to receive our new kits and we wanted to share some renderings with our members in the meantime…
11 matches unbeaten and without conceding a single goal the Lionesses bravely fought their way to the final against the swift and skilful Kidlington Youth team. The final match eclipsed the day with an early goal from Kitty Martin and a screamer at the end from Ruby Hogan to give the girls a much deserved victory and earning each player a winners medal and the opportunity to savour the coveted tournament winners trophy. Last years shield winners to this years trophy winners – what a tremendous improvement from the girls!
The girls made it through to the final and narrowly lost out to a strong Stotfold side in this 9 aside tournament. Having come so close to a medal in the Flitwick tournament early in the month the girls had cause for celebration this time.A massive well done to the girls for finishing Runners Up.
We’d like to recognise two of our club coaches who have now completed their Level 3 (UEFA B) qualification in coaching football. Jeremy Hall (coaches our U15 Lionesses) and Martin White (coaches our U13 Tornadoes) have dedicated an amazing amount of hours (off and on the pitch) to achieve this and we’d like to congratulate them on their achievement!
Our youngest girls footballers had the experience of a lifetime on Saturday attending the Women’s FA Cup Final at Wembley. Not only did many of them get to be part of an amazing event, some lucky ones got to form part of the Wildcats Parade on the hallowed Wembley turf. A huge thank you to all who made this possible, but especially to Pat Mancini and Andy Perkins who have worked tirelessly to make yet another magical football adventure come true.

The drought of 2018 took a huge toll on a number of WWFC’s
playing locations. Pitches on predominantly sand based soils dried out, and the
grass never truly recovered.
As part of the FA’s Pitch Improvement Programme, WWFC looks
to improve both the quality and robustness of all our playing surfaces. The aim
is not only to reduce postponements, but also to increase participation levels
on surfaces delivering the best quality football experience.
With this in mind, your Club has invested £3500 in deep seed
drilling and fertilisation of pitches at Woburn, Aspley Guise and Little
Brickhill. The process should ensure maximum germination of tough rye grass and
deliver optimum surfaces ready for season 2019/20.
